    Andrew, your comment about over-penetration is disingenuous. For example, there is plenty of law enforcement data on overpenetration and wounding of bystanders in the days of issued 9mm and .45acp fmj ammo. Mas Ayoob wrote about it. Your blanket statement doesn't take into account bullet construction.

    Further, nobody should be taking a shot with a bystander in the line of fire. You don't have a good backstop and this is a Cooper Rule #2 violation.

    Departmental choice was and still is the Ranger SXT and I am retired and still carry that load in my G-23.
    Nice video and it was simple & to the point.
